If Micro 43 Rumors is to be believed Olympus is developing an 20mm/f1.4 Pro Prime Lens. It will be the first of a series of F1.4 Pro prime lenses.

The E-M5.3 is slightly smaller and lighter than the E-M5.2. The E-P7 is smaller and lighter than the E-P5.

The 12-45/4.0 is the start of the f4.0 Pro Zoom Lens Series. There is a 40-150/4.0 shown on the lens roadmap.

3-5 years too late. There are already Sigma 1.4 primes that perform well and except the 16mm are small and Panasonic has a 25mm 1.4 prime AND the 15 1.7 that are both very regarded

They have 1.8 and 1.2 lenses already need to phase something out to justify new primes or go for odd focal lengths

It is very difficult to make money in a segment that is already saturated

But they could make lenses that are missing in the lineup like 7, 8 or 10 mm primes  and make them f1.8 , compact and weather sealed
